At the national level, different Ministries are
responsible for the management of situation relating
to different types of crisis. The Ministry of
Agriculture is the nodal Ministry for the management
of situation relating to natural calamities such
as drought, flood, earthquake etc. The Ministry
of Environment and Forests is the nodal Ministry
for management of chemical accidents. The Ministry
of Railways is the nodal Ministry for managing
rail accidents. The Ministry of Civil Aviation
is the nodal Ministry for managing air crash and
other civil aviation related crisis situations.
The Ministry of Mines is responsible for the management
of mining accidents. The Secretary of the concerned
Ministry, generally heads the Crisis Management
Committee at national levels which has representatives
from the concerned Central Agencies dealing with
different aspects of disaster response and recovery.
In case of a very serious disaster, the Cabinet
Secretary heads the Central Crisis Management
Committee. The Central Crisis Management Committee
establishes a Control Room at the concerned nodal
Ministry depending on the nature of disaster.
7.2 STATE LEVEL
At the State level, different departments of the
State Government act as nodal agencies for the
management of different types of crisis / disaster
situations. In the case of natural calamities,
the State Relief Commissioner, who is generally
also the Secretary of the State Revenue Department,
is the nodal authority to monitor and direct natural
disaster management activities in the state. In
case of industrial accidents, the Labour Secretary
becomes the nodal authority at the State level
for its management. In case of rail accidents,
the Home Secretary acts as the nodal authority
for its management. Similar to the Crisis Management
Group at national level, in case of a disaster
of a serious nature, the Chief Secretary heads
the State Crisis Management Group. The State Crisis
Management Group also has the representatives
of the concerned department and agencies responsible
for different aspects relating to disaster response
7.3 DISTRICT LEVEL
At the district level Collector, who has the general
administrative control over all the district level
office of different State Government departments,
acts as the focal point for all types of disaster
response and recovery activities. At the district
level, there is no formal constitution of Committee
for ensuring a coordinated response but the Collector
because of his unique position in the government
set-up at the district level is able to ensure
functioning of a non-formal team of officials
from different State government agencies. The
power of sanction of relief is vested with officials
of Revenue Department at different level, depending
upon the operational needs. The Collector is able
to ensure participation of different State Government
agencies in the response and recovery activities
and provides the necessary financial support and
sanctions from the funds available with him for
relief and for rural development works. He also
manages to get the support, both managerial and
material, from the NGOs.
In case of industrial accidents, involving, hazardous
chemicals, Manufacture Storage and Import of Hazardous
Chemicals (MS&IHC) Rules, 1989; issued by
Government of India under the Environment Protection
Act, 1986; provides for identification of hazardous
chemicals and MAH units, notification of hazardous
sites, safety audit of MAH units, and preparation
of on-site & off-site plan chemical Emergency
(Prevention Preparedness and Response) Rule as
ammended 2000 under the Environment Protection
Act, 1986 has provisions for constitution of formal
Crisis Management Group at national, State, district
and local levels. The constitution of these Crisis
Management Groups is indicated at (Annexe–
It has been the experience on many occasions
that the existing organizational structure for
disaster management has failed to provide a quick
and coordinated response in many disaster situations.
The Government of India has constituted a High
Powered Committee for suggesting appropriate Disaster
Management Plans at National, State and District
level. The Committee is headed by Shri J.C. Pant,
(retired Secretary, Government of India, Ministry
of Agriculture). The Committee is making suggestions
regarding model Disaster Management Plans at the
National, State and District levels. The Committee
is also likely to come up with an organizational
structure, both for the national and state level
for disaster management to take care of all phases
of disaster management. The present document only
seeks to propose an appropriate organizational
structure at district level for the management
of different phases of an emergency.
7.4 DISTRICT DISASTER MANAGEMENT STRUCTURE
The organizational structure suggested in DDMP
will be based on following three concepts:
* Plans will work only in the case when present
organizational structure is responsible to its
non-emergency duties i.e. if a job is done well
everyday, it is best done by that organization
* Crisis should be met at the lowest and most
immediate level of government. Plans call for
local response supplemented if necessary, by the
next higher jurisdiction.\
* Voluntary response and involvement of the private
sector should be sought and emphasized. The emergency
management partnership is important to all phases
of natural and man-made disasters.
7.5 DISTRICT DISASTER MANAGEMENT PLANNING
DDMPC should be constituted only in the
case where all the stakeholders particularly the
local political leadership are members in disaster
DDMPC should be constituted, which will be apex
body to monitor the whole preparedness and mitigation
activities regarding disasters in the district.
DDMPC will have both official and non-official
representation from the DPC (District Planning
Committee), and also of local NGO’s engaged
in disaster mitigation and relief activities.
Apart from the overall supervision of disaster
management plan, DDMPC will also ensure the relevant
administrative approval of mitigation schemes
and flow of funds for disaster management planning,
from the District Government and Panchayati Raj
DDMPC will comprise of:
1. Minister in-charge, Rohtak, Chairman
2. District Collector, Member Secretary
3. Mayor, Municipal council
4. Chairman, Zila Parishad
5. Member of Parliament (MP), Rohtak
6. Members of State Legislature (MLA’s)
from the District Rohtak
7. Block Presidents
8. District Crisis Group members (Structure &
responsibilities have been discussed further).
9. Representatives of Non-Government & Voluntary
Organizations engaged in disaster mitigation,
planning, relief and recovery activities.
10. Community representatives
7.5.1 RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE DDMPC
1. Evaluation, approval and updating of District
Disaster Management Plan (DDMP)
2. Dissemination of District Disaster Management
3. The committee would meet in July every year
to review the overall mitigation and preparedness
activities in the district.
The responsibility for dissemination of District
Disaster Management Plan will lie with DDMPC.
In order to make disaster management process more
effective, in the district, it is important to
disseminate the District Disaster Management Plan
at all levels i.e. the district authority, government
departments, non-government / private organizations
and general public. Effective implementation of
the DDMP would be done through training programmes
and awareness activities will be organized for
different levels of functionaries. Updating of
the plan will be major responsibility of DDMPC
in order to keep it a "living document"
with the changing situations. The following are
the guidelines, which should be considered, while
updating the District Disaster Management Plan.
1. A proper procedure should be introduced,
to update the plan on a regular basis with the
use of current information. The procedure for
updating the plan is mentioned in Annexure
2. The amendment in the plan should be supported
with the date of amendment and such amendments
should be communicated to all the concerned departments
7.5.2 DISTRICT CRISIS GROUP (DCG)
An effective disaster management strategy must
be supported by a quick decision making process
which will include the issues related to warning,
conduct evacuation and rescue & relief operations
in the event of a disaster. This requires a core
team of senior decision-makers having administrative
control over the key resource organisations. Therefore,
it is utmost need to constitute a DCG (District
Crisis Group) with District Collector as its leader,
who would also be the District Disaster Manager
(DDM), because the District Collector exercises
general administrative control over all district
level officers and performs the role of District
Relief Manager (DRM). The organisational structure
for disaster management in the district has been
proposed here, which recommends the District Collector
as the nodal officer for control and co-ordination
of emergency activities.
District Crisis Group will include:
1. District Collector (Team leader)
2. Superintendent of Police
3. District Commandant , Homeguards
4. Executive Engineer, PWD
5. Divisional Engineer, HSEB
6. Chief Medical Officer (CMO)
7. Municipal Commissioner, Municipal council
8. Chief Executive Officer , Zila Panchayat
District Crisis Group members may be required
to reach the affected area for monitoring and
co-ordination of the response functions at the
site. District Disaster Control Room (DDCR) will
facilitate functioning of DCG even when its members
may be in the affected area. The members of DCG
will be provided wireless facility for interaction
During emergency, the District Collector would
act as the focal point for control and co-ordination
of all activities. His responsibilities have been
identified as follow:
1. Get in touch with the local Army/ Navy/ Airforce
units for assistance in rescue, evacuation and
2. He will have the authority to requisition resources,
materials and equipment from all the Departments
/ Organizations of the government and also from
the private sector;
3. He will have the power to direct the industry
to activate their onsite and offsite disaster
4. He will set up ‘Site Operations Centre’
(SOC) in the affected area with desk arrangements;
5. He will authorise the establishment of transit
and / or relief camps, feeding centres and cattle
6. He will send ‘Preliminary Information
Report’ and ‘Action Taken Report’
to the State Relief Commissioner and Divisional
7. He will authorize immediate evacuation, whenever
The Collector can select and appoint any officer
of the State Government posted in Rohtak district,
if he feels that the services of that officer
are required for disaster planning or response
1. Responsibilities of the DCG
1. On spot decision making;
2. Control and co-ordination of response and recovery
activities in the district;
3. Resource mobilization and replenishment;
4. Monitoring of overall response and recovery
5. Preparation of reports for submission to State
Government through Relief Commissioner.
Traditionally, the tehsil office and local police
station, both are the main government agencies
below the district level, which will initiate
trigger mechanism for emergency operations in
the event of major accidents / disaster threats.
In view of limited availability of resources for
disaster management, below the district level,
DDMP has not proposed any administrative structure
for co-ordinated operation during emergency. In
the event of less serious disaster threat / accident,
the local tehsil office or police station would
continue to initiate trigger mechanism and provide
an emergency response with the help of locally
available resources. DCG on receipt of information,
from any of the two agencies, would take appropriate
decision to augment local resources and give appropriate
instructions to the concerned response agencies.
7.5.3 DISTRICT DISASTER CONTROL ROOM
A single District Disaster Control Room (DDCR)
is proposed with desk arrangements for specific
activities during a disaster. DDCR will have senior
representatives from the key resource organizations
to facilitate a co-ordinated response. The DDCR
would be linked to Disaster Operation Centre (DOC)
constituted at state level.
District Disaster Control Room will have very
limited participation of people to avoid chaos
and confusion. Therefore, the non-government agencies
although having a role in the rescue and relief
operations will not be represented in the District
Disaster Control Room. However, to ensure the
utilization of the manpower and material resources
of these agencies, the Plan advocates to constitute
a Sub-Group comprising of representatives of only
non-government agencies, which will be responsible
for distribution of relief materials obtained
from external source, and also to support the
government's requirement of additional manpower
There seems to be no need to deploy large manpower
in DDCR in normal times. The emergency situations
in normal times are considered as minor emergencies,
which can be handled on a regular day-to-day basis
by the local police, fire department and the health
department. There is practically no need to activate
the DDCR beyond the routine staff for such minor
emergencies. It is proposed that at normal times,
the DDCR should have only one or two support staff.
During disaster, the district should increase
and activate the DDCR beyond the routine staff
to co-op with what is described as limited emergencies.
During such period, the officer present in the
DDCR should be capable of activating the DDCR
to its full resource level on receiving the warning
or information of a disaster. During this stage,
most of the communication links of DDCR should
be made fully operational. During disaster, District
collector will have to direct the operations at
the affected site; to coordinate at the district
headquarter and to interact with the State Government
to meet the conflicting demands at the time of
disaster is the responsibility of the District
Collector and his team. The Plan recommends a
District Disaster Control Room to help the District
Collector and his team to meet conflicting demands.
A well-equipped DDCR in terms of manpower and
equipment should be established to perform the
1. Collection and compilation of information
from the affected area;
2. Documentation information flow;
3. Decision making regarding resource management;
4. Allocation of task to different resource organization;
5. Supply of information to State Government.
7.5.4 DESK ARRANGEMENTS
It is practically difficult for the District
Collector and his team members to be present round
the clock in the DDCR. Thus, it is proposed that
the DDCR should have senior representative in
the capacity of Desk Officers from the following
key resource agencies:
1. Search, Rescue & Evacuation desk;
2. Logistics & Welfare desk;
3. Medical desk;
4. Infrastructure desk;
In case of flood, Infrastructure desk will have
a senior representative from Irrigation department
but in case of other disasters, a senior representative
of the Public Works Department (PWD) will man
The DDCR will also have the necessary support
staff to assist the senior representatives designated
as Desk Officers in the DDCR. The Desk Officers
will maintain a constant contact with the District
Crisis Group members and the other district heads,
to ensure quick decision-making. They will also
be responsible to allocate task to concerned staff,
resource management and information flow.
7.6.1 ACTIVITIES OF DISTRICT DISASTER
CONTROL ROOM (DDCR)
(a) Normal time activity
District Collector will appoint an Administrative
Officer as Officer-in-charge of DDCR. He will
be responsible for the effective functioning of
the DDCR. His responsibilities during the normal
times will include:
1. Ensure all warning and communication systems,
instruments are in working condition;
2. Information collection on a routine basis from
the district departments on the vulnerability
of tehsils and villages to disasters;
3. Liaison with DDMPC;
4. Develop status reports of preparedness and
mitigation activities in the district;
5. Ensure appropriate implementation of District
Disaster Management Plan
6. Maintenance of data bank with regular updating;
7. Evaluation & updating of District Disaster
Management Plan is the responsibility of DDMPC.
However, DDCR would keep an account of the amendments
and accordingly review its response strategy.
The Officer-in-charge of DDCR will be responsible
for activating the trigger mechanism in the event
of receipt of a warning or occurrence of a disaster.
7.6.2 ACTIVITIES ON OCCURRENCE OF EMERGENCY
ISSUE WARNING / ALERT
On the basis of message received from the forecasting
agencies, warning has to be issued for the general
public and the departments, which play a vital
role during emergencies. Issue of correct and
timely warning would be one of the prime responsibilities
of DDCR. For effective dissemination of warning
DDCR should have a well-planned line of communication.
The District Collector would be the authoritative
body to issue warning. Formulation of warning
message should consider the target group for which
it is issued. For the warning, message to be effective
it should be clear, consistent and timely, so
that appropriate response time is given to the
The warning or occurrence of a disaster will
also be communicated to:
1. State Relief Commissioner, DOC;
2. Office of Divisional Commissioner;
3. The officials of central government located
within the district;
4. Mayor, President Zila Panchayat, MPs and MLAs
from the district or affected area;
5. Local units of Defence Services;
Guidelines for issuing warning are mentioned
in Standard Operating Procedure for DDCR placed
7.7 DESK ARRANGEMENTS
The occurrence of disaster would essentially
bring into force the following:
1. The DDCR will be on alert stage and can be
expanded to include desk arrangements with responsibilities
for specific tasks;
2. The District Collector will spell out the priorities
and policy guidelines, co-ordinate services of
various department and agencies including national
and international aid agencies, and central government
agencies. The DDCR, in its expanded from, will
continue to operate as long as the need for emergency
relief operations continue till the long-term
plans for rehabilitation are finalized;
3. For managing long-term rehabilitation programs,
the responsibilities will be that of the respective
line department. As already mentioned, the department
sub-committee would be responsible for long-term
recovery work. This will enable the DDCR to attend
to other disaster situation, if required.
The desk arrangements provide for division of
tasks, information gathering and record keeping
and accountability of the desk officer to the
District Collector. Each desk has two Desk Officers
assigned, who would be on duty on rotation. The
capacity of various desks to coordinate amongst
themselves and with the units to be coordinated
will ultimately decide the quality of response.
All communication received and sent will be recorded
in the "In and Out Messages and Register".
Reports and information will be collected and
processed according to the formats. The responsibilities
and functions of each desk have been mentioned
3. Post-emergency activities
After an emergency the main responsibility of
a DDCR would be:
1. Evaluation of relief and rehabilitation activities
in order to assess the nature of state intervention
and support, suitability of the organizational
structure, institutional arrangements, adequacy
of Operating Procedures, monitoring mechanisms,
information tools, equipment and communication
2. Post-emergency impact studies for long term
preventive and mitigation efforts to be taken.
7.7.1 FACILITIES AVAILABLE WITH DDCR
1. The facilities and amenities available with
DDCR would include well-designed control room
and workstations, wireless communication, hotlines,
and intercoms. The DDCR, as a data bank, will
maintain various district action plans and maps.
Provision of a vehicle with wireless communication
should be made for the DDCR during normal times.
In addition to above, a DDCR should have space
for various desk arrangements during disaster
situations. DDCR should be equipped with:
2. On-site Disaster Management Plans for MAH units;
3. Map of the district indicating following information:
o Vulnerable areas,
o Identified shelters,
o Communication link system;
1. Inventory of manpower resources, particularly
address, telephone numbers of key contact persons;
2. Inventory of material resources;
3. List of experts;
4. Important phone numbers, which are frequently
required, will be displayed at appropriate places
so that they can be referred easily, while other
phone numbers, names and addresses etc., will
be displayed on the computer to facilitate easy
retrieval and cross-referencing.
7.8 COMMUNICATION ROOM (MAIN MESSAGE
The police wireless system should continue
to be in contact with the DDCR. In addition, the
following facilities would be available in the
3. Intercom units for contact within the Collectorate;
4. Civil Wireless Network upto Tahsildar level;
5. One PC with modem and printer;
6. Mechanical typewriter;
7. Photocopying machine.
In every district, the police will have a well-established
wireless communication system. Therefore, it is
proposed that under any emergency the communication
resources available with the police should be
depended upon. During disaster, DDCR would be
1. Divisional Commissioner;
2. Site Operations Centre.
7.9 FACILITIES AT VARIOUS DESKS
The Desk Officer - Communication Room will be
responsible for ensuring maintenance of DDCR facilities.
All the desks would have:
1. Intercom units for contact within the Collectorate
for all Desk Officers in DDCR;
2. Office space for secretarial facility should
be clearly demarcated.
7.10 TRANSPORT FACILITY
A jeep with wireless communication would be assigned
to DDCR during normal times. Additional vehicles
will be requisitioned as per the requirements
during the emergency.
7.11 DDCR STAFFING
Three kinds of staff is proposed for the DDCR:
* Regular staff,
* Staff-on-call, and
* Staff on disaster duty.
1. The regular staff should be posted permanently
in the DDCR, who would be responsible for manning
the Communication Room round the clock;
2. Staff-on-call would be available for immediate
duty in case of an emergency. Two officers of
the rank of Deputy Collectors can make up the
Staff-on-call during a disaster, these officers
would always be available "on call".
3. The staff on disaster duty would be required
to shoulder additional responsibility in the case
of a disaster. This additional staff would be
of the nature of a reserve and may be drawn from
the various departments. During normal time, this
staff will not be called on to perform any duty
in the DDCR. This staff would be responsible for
managing the desk arrangements. Each concerned
department should nominate one officer for DDCR.
The departmental officers nominated as "Desk
Officers" from the concerned line departments
and other agencies will be available in the DDCR
during the disaster period. All the important
revenue officials in the district should be trained
in the working of the DDCR. The nodal officers
of other line departments would also be familiar
with the functions of DDCR. The flow chart illustrating
DDCR staffing for control & coordination is
shown in Figure 3. The Standard Operating Procedure
for the functioning of DDCR is placed at Annexure
7.12 SITE OPERATION CENTER (SOC)
A Site Operation Centre (SOC) is also proposed
as a complimentary unit to DDCR, which will operate
close to the disaster site and will be linked
directly with the district level control room
(DDCR). Tehsildar will be the nodal officer from
district administration at this level and would
be responsible of coordinating at lowest level.
The District Collector will also appoint an administrative
officer to monitor and co-ordinate the activities
of SOC as soon as possible. All information would
be conveyed to the Collector from the Tehsildar
through the administrative officer appointed at
SOC. The tehsil unit of the respective vital departments
would be responsible to execute activities at
disaster site, however the tasks would be controlled
and coordinated from DDCR through nodal desk officers.
In the event of a serious disaster, the Collector
will have sole right to appoint senior officers
of any State Government Department, posted in
Rohtak as ‘Field Relief Managers’
for monitoring and co-ordinating the relief operations
in the affected area.
The information flow between Disaster Operation
Center (DOC), District Disaster Control Room (DDCR)
and Site Operation center (SOC) is proposed in
the form of flow chart, Figure 4.
There will be assigned various activities among
different departments of the State government.
The Departmental Manuals of these departments
lay down the responsibilities of different officers,
including responsibilities for preventing disasters
and for initiating appropriate response activities
in the event of a disaster. However, this plan
will not restrict to the responsibilities prescribed
in the respective departmental manuals. It makes
an effort to provide an institutional mechanism
for a quick and co-ordinated response. The officers
of different resource organizations are expected
to initiate action on their own in the event of
a disaster or a threat of a disaster. But, they
are certainly expected to keep the Collector and
DDCR informed of the action being taken by them
and act promptly as per the directions from the
FLOOD DISASTER MANAGEMENT PLAN DISTRICT
Rohtak district is situated on the west side of
Delhi and surrounded by boundaries of district
Jhajjar, Bhiwani, Hisar, Jind, Panipat and Sonepat.
As per topography of Haryana State flood water
in flow is mainly from North to South particularluy
in this district. The rain water finds natural
flow in to Rohtak district from the adjoining
districts i.e. Panipat, Sonepat and Jind. The
location of Rohtak Town and levels does not allow
the gravity flow of the rain water into the nearby
drains, but dewatering is being done through pumping
and for that considering particular rainfall,
the capacity of the pumps has been designed. In
case there is heavy rainfall, then there is a
flooding in most of the town area and that is
why it has necessitated the Flood Disaster Management
plan for Rohtak Town as well as surrounding areas,
because district has face critical floods during
1960, 1962, 1967, 1977, 1983, 1987 and 1995.
As mentioned above, the district faced floods
many time due to its topography and it took months
to clear the floodwaters. The city is surrounded
by Drain no.8 and JLN Feeder, which is one of
the main canal of the State. Introspection of
flood waters reveals that flood water has entered
in Rohtak Town either from Drain no.8 or by crossing/
overtoppling the then low lying bund on the northern
side connecting Gohana-Rohtak Railway line to
Drain no.8 during 1995, due to choking of Diversion
Drain no.8, the inlets on the right side started
functioning due to rise in water level in Diversion
Drain no.8 and then as per topography water started
flowing was taken by Drain bo.8, but due to rise
in water level in Drain no.8 there was a back
flow and ultimately the sheet water touched the
existing northern bund. Due to heavy rains in
the first week of September, 1995. the flood waters
ultimately overtopped the bund and water entered
into the city area. Due to this natural inundation,
there was approximately 10' water in depth in
the heart of the city and town itself had to be
vacated. Similar situation occurred due to breach
in Drain no.8 during 1962. To clear the floodwaters,
it took complete one month after putting all the
resources available at the command of Rohtak district.
Similarly, there was heavy flooding in the rural
area particularly in Meham Sub Division, where
it took approximately one year to clear the floodwaters.
Like this, there was heavy damages caused by the
floods in Rural as well as Urban areas. In nutshell,
Rohtak town/Rohtak district itself is one the
critical district so far as floods are concerned.
To counteract these floods, various preventive
measures have been taken which are discussed below
The various preventive measures have been taken
by various departments including the main two
i.e. irrigation and Public Health Departments,
responsible for tackling the floods.
1. DESIGN CRITERIA FOR FLOOD WORKS
The drains have been designed with the formula
of 7 cusecs per sq. mile which can be attributed
to rainfall of 22" to 25" and the flood
waters can be cleared within six days except the
pockets/ low lying area of which water can not
be dewatered through gravity flow. So it is considered
that except these pockets, there will be no damage
to the crops in the area. It is pertinent to mention
here that due to continuous flow irrigation through
canals and tube-wells, the water table has come
up and as a result there of the crop pattern in
the area has also switched to rice mainly from
wheat, Sugarcane, Jawar and Bajra. This has also
become an additional factor for rise in water
table. So the area is prone to floods. The main
dewatering process for villages and fields is
being taken by the irrigation department, whereas
the dewatering process within municipal limits
is being undertaken by the Public Health Department.
The department has excavated number of drains
in the area considering the disaster caused by
floods of 1995.
2. INFRASTRUCTURE OF DRAINS
To make the district flood free, the rehabilitation
of the existing drains has been under WRCP while
most of the drains have been constructed under
NABARAD project. During 1995, there was a sheet
flow between drain no.8 and JLN Feeder, which
ultimately entered in Rohtak town particularly.
To counteract the same, Rohtak drain has been
constructed which outfalls into Kultana-chhudani-Bhupania
drain. The latter has also been rehabilitated
which outfalls into Najafgarh drain and ultimately
the water is discharged in River Yamuna. The list
of the existing drain in Rohtak district is attached.
3. PROTECTION OF BUNDS
The protection bunds are maintained by the Additional
Deputy Commissioner through concerned B.D. &
P.O. every year. The detail of such bunds block-wise
is given in Annexure-II.
4. DEWATERING ARRANGEMENTS AND AVAILABILITY
OF MATERIAL AND MAN POWER
(A) Irrigation Department
The availability of pumping machinery and man
power in the irrigation department is as under
I) Permanent Pump House
During the flood season, the primary responsibility
of the irrigation department is to carry out dewatering
of the flood waters affecting village abadies
and fields. For this purpose, 10 nos. permanent
pump houses having 273 cusecs capacity stand installed
in order to provide relief to the village abadies,
live stock and fields. The list of such pump houses
is given in annexure -III
II) Mobile Pumps
Besides, some area which is not covered by these
pump houses, mobile diesel pumping sets having
270 cs. capacity and electric pumping sets having
630 cs. capacity are also available in water services
Mechanical Division, Rohtak for installation at
various sites and ring bunds to protect abadies
and fields from fury of floods as per site requirement.
The list of the availability of mobile pumps is
also attached herewith as Annexure-IV
III) Temporary Electric sites to be
installed up to 30/6
In addition to above, some temporary electric
sites as per list attached as Annexure-V stand
already identified as vulnerable sites where electric
pumping sets are installed before 30/6 every year
which will start function as and when necessity
IV) Deferred Electric Sites
Apart from this, there are some more temporary
sites, the installation of which can be deferred
due to site being approachable but electric connections
are to be applied. These sites are to be installed
during floods, if required. The list of such deferred
sites is also enclosed herewith as
In addition to this, some more temporary sites
are also installed in the fields according to
the intensity of rains and requirement in the
fields. So keeping in view the past experience,
about 115 nos. electric and 130 nos. diesel sites
will be installed in case of floods in the area.
The sites to be installed are also depicted on
the Index Plan attached herewith.
